With the upgrade to iOS 17 you can now use the standby function on the Apple iPhone. This means that an overview of time, weather and possibly other data and widgets is displayed on the iPhone display when it is oriented horizontally when charging. But when you use iPhone StandBy for the first time, you may immediately notice that the wrong time or the wrong time zone and city are displayed. For me, for example, B. the Californian city Cupertino (CUP) and their time are displayed even though I am in Germany. You can read here what solution I found when the iPhone standby clock goes wrong.

iPhone StandBy: Change time zone to display the correct time
To change the time that the iPhone display shows in standby mode, you don't have to adjust anything in the settings. I tried that and nothing helped. Instead, the city as the starting point of the time to be displayed must be adjusted directly via the standby screen. And it's actually quite easy:
- Hold your finger on the clock until the widget overview opens
- Go to the clock widget in the list and tap it
- Tap the specified city (for me, Cupertino, USA).
- Search for your own city or time zone in the search field and tap the result
- Tap next to the overview with the new city and select “Done” at the top right
